Always on the lookout for a sale, I located a rack of sleepers at Babiesrus for $6.99. It's like they were practically GIVING them away.
For those of you that have never been in the market for baby pajamas, you will be disgusted to hear that such stores as Gymboree has the balls to sell them for $20 and up.
Out of principle, I refuse to purchase pajamas there. I think it is highway robbery.
So there I am, face to face with a giant rack of sale jammies. My heart rate began accelerating. I've hit the mother lode.
Big E is pretty set on jammies. Little E is a different story. The fleece sleepers that were handed down from Big E haven't been working for Little E. They make his skin break out, shocking, I know.
I'm always on the hunt for a fuller fitting jammie. Most of them are cut "skinny", which is discriminating to the larger boned toddlers, like Little E.
Oooooh, look at these cute dinosaur themed pajamas! They even say ENORMOSAURUS on the front, perfect for Little E.
I pulled them off the rack. JACKPOT! They weren't slim fitting, they were perfect. To be on the safe side, I bought him a 2T. He is currently 17 months and not tall. At. All.
Tonight, as I was sliding on Little E's new pajamas, I rejoiced at how easy they slid over his fat arms.
We moved to the legs. Well, these were definitely long enough. Not that I was worried.
As I zipped up the leg I hit a major speed bump, or as it is anatomically known, his thigh.
While the new jammies were fuller cut, they were not stretchy, and stretchy is key. I tried to move the zipper over Little E's fat rolls, but I was worried I'd catch some skin.
As I pulled the two sides of the fabric together, I conceded the battle. Even if I WERE able to zip this thing up, Little E would probably lose blood circulation to his leg in about seven minutes.
Ugh. I give up. Seven dollars is not worth it. I stripped him down and started over.
The irony was not lost on me.
My kid can't fit into the ENORMOSAURUS jammies.
Anyone not impressed by Little E's legs is a liar.

Hi folks! A quick note from Mrs. Yoy as I know it's been awhile. For those that know me personally, you know that I've been very vocal in unsuccessfully convincing the Cobb County School board to change their COVID policies, which to this day, remain a steaming pile of sh*t. We follow zero health guidelines and figuring out the quarantine policy is akin to solving that math problem from Good Will Hunting. I will be publishing the letters I've sent to the board and Superintendent over the last 18 days of school. I've heard back from my representative, who is lovely, and my pediatric dentist who also serves on the board, but it's been crickets from the voting block of four and the Superintendent, Chris Ragsdale. Apparently, he's too busy pumping iron and self-tanning. Anyway, enjoy. HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! (E-mail sent on August 2, 2021) Good morning from East Cobb! As a long time resident, I am writing you this morning to plead with you to reconsider the mask
I must say, we timed our arrival perfectly. You know how I loathe hanging out in the waiting room of the pediatrician's office. Especially during the plague season. The boys barely had time to lick the fish tank glass, when Little E was called back. Big E is all about the doctor's office when he is just an onlooker. He took the lead, I really didn't have to be there. Big E explained perfectly to Dr. K what had happened to Little E. It was like I was watching him present on his medical school rounds. For a minute, I was such a proud, Jewish mother. Dr. K had me take Little E's shirt off so she could examine him. She moved his arm around and checked his elbow and wrist. I'M NAKED! I'M NAKED! Little E repeated this until I finally translated it to Dr. K. She burst into laughter. But this how I know she is an awesome doctor. She casually asked Little E to high-five her with his left arm. He began to, but then switched and high-fived her wit
Good morning from East Cobb! I am following up on an email I sent yesterday morning, to which I received zero responses. As a long time resident, I am writing you this morning to plead with you to reconsider the mask policy for Cobb County schools this year. I’ve been speaking with many parents and we are stressed and saddened by the lack of consideration and communication from the board regarding the recent surge of Covid. In case you wanted to know, I can also see the future. And in two weeks when we are all at home, virtual again, with sick kids, teachers, bus drivers and others in quarantine, I will be thinking of you and your total disregard for the health of our children and our families. Look, we all make judgment mistakes. We all have a crazy family member spreading conspiracy theories. But we don’t let these people and/or the internet comments section guide our work decisions. Gosh, I can’t imagine if I let my dad’s view of our income tax system influence how I prepared tax r
